`Adnan Abu `Awdah. I forgot to mention this regarding the episode (Part I) on Abu `Awdah on AlJazeera's Ziyarah Khassah. Abu `Awdah told viewers that he was always different from people around him (he meant better); that he was more skeptical. He attributed that--I am not making this up--to regularly reading Time magazine. For me, reading Time and Newsweek causes irreparable damage to my brain cells, although they can be of good use. Falafil Al-Asdiqa' in Lebanon used them to wrap falafil sandwiches.
